A cycle-accurate simulator, like MAME, may be more appropriate in those 
cases. Physical device pass through doesn't exist (yet) though. That is
one thing I think a lot of people would be interested in for legacy hw
though then you run into the problem of finding modern hardware with old
slots, since the simulation will give you a 100x hit in performance.
